A small town northwest of Brisbane has rallied to save its historic corner store, which could be demolished to make way for a flashy new service station:

For almost a century, the D’Aguilar corner store has stood proudly on the corner of Wood St and the D’Aguilar Hwy, but possibly not for much longer.

“The Dag’’ is not only the place locals gather for a coffee and catch up, it provides fuel, food and friendship — a place where “everybody knows your name”.

Residents now fear their de facto community hub could soon be a thing of the past after a developer revealed plans for a service station, shop and car wash.

CCD Developments lodged a development application on August 12 to replace the historic corner store, northwest of Brisbane.
